Watch out for Windows FIPS

Postby ian » Thu Oct 02, 2014 3:00 pm

A customer had a problem getting DataSlave to run on a Windows 2008 R2 machine. We were all confused as we had no problem on an identical machine in our labs.

The error appeared as shown in the attached image. There is no entry in the Event Log.

After some investigation we have shown that the Windows Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) features was enabled on the machine. Turn this off using a Group Policy and the error no longer appears.

If you are unsure how to disable this rarely used feature please search on Google or do contact us.
